Keeping the Builder Building

Home About Meet the Directors

Michael Brown

Managing Director


After completing a Carpentry and Joinery apprenticeship in 1990 with distinctions, Michael started work at Southern Nail Supplies – a family owned and run company set up in 1974 by Michael’s father, Andrew.

Having worked his way up through the company, Michael held managerial roles in procurement and sales, developing an in depth knowledge of building materials and the building industry along the way.

In 2002, Southern Nail Supplies changed its name to SNS Building Products and Michael became Managing Director when the company incorporated in 2013. Michael is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the business.


Adrian Eames

Finance Director


With a varied background, including sales, customer service, and operations, Adrian is far from the stereo-typical financial introvert!  He is focused on offering solutions rather than problems, and ensures these are both practical as well as financially sound.

As an experienced finance executive and business advisor Adrian joined the board of SNS Building Products in October 2018 as Finance Director.

SNS & Allbuild Merge

SNS purchased the stock & assets of Allbuild Products in January 2019 to give us a stronger presence in today’s increasingly competitive marketplace.

This strategic move makes excellent business sense for us as a company and will be particularly beneficial for our customers. Both companies provide similar products and services to the building industry, but by joining forces with Allbuild we can offer our customers a broader product range and geographical delivery area. Combining our strengths and buying power also means we are more competitive and it will also significantly expand our customer network – Keeping the Builder Building!

We will continue to give our loyal customers the personal service that has helped us build our reputation for going much more than that extra mile, and providing products and services they know they can trust.
